Dental x-rays are an invaluable aid in the diagnosis, treatment and maintenance of oral health. Digital dental x-rays have around 75% less radiation when compared to traditional x-rays. These images can be viewed immediately. They can also be enhanced and magnified.
Digital images can be stored quickly and are easily transferred to your dentist or insurance company.
3D Advanced Imaging
The Carestream 9000 Cone Beam CT unit we have in the office captures a localized field of view with high resolution 3D imaging. Because of the localized view, exposure is confined just to the field of interest. The radiation with this unit is 10-30 times less than other comparable machines.
3D imaging is used for implant planning to exactly locate anatomic structures like nerves and sinus cavities. It is also used to assess the shape and size of the jaw bone.
This imaging can be used to assess the location of impacted teeth. It can also be used to better evaluate the severity and etiology of bone loss around individual teeth.
Precision Implant Dentistry
Our practice uses computer guided implant planning. This allows for more accurate and predictable implant treatment. 3D imaging along with computer software allows Dr. Cascino to evaluate and best place dental implants.
